Between January and March our Agronomists will be hitting the ground attending to farmers by offering them best solutions on to prepare their farms in advance for the next rainy / planting season.

Why now?

With the current sunlight levels and inadequate rainfall, planting can be a challenge to those who do not have a reliable source of water, therefore it is advisable to do the preparations between now and the time we expect the rainfalls, the farmer will have been preparing their farm so that once it starts raining, you will just plant, instead of doing the soil sampling then and then end up losing some days of rainfall.

Adequate planning helps a farmer put in place the right resources in the soil and also put in place the necessary inputs before the planting exercise commences.
